What were the band Queen called before Queen?
Queen wasn't always 'Queen'. Before Queen was formed with the four musicians we all know today, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Meddows Taylor had started a band called Smile , and Mercury, who was a friend of theirs from university, would 'advise from the wings'. Mercury later joined Smile as the lead singer and then changed the name of the band to 'Queen', thinking that it was more outrageous.
